The comedian hilariously explained to North Western Asian Weekly in April 2019, how her strict immigrant parents got convinced about the idea. Well, her sisters were already doing well, so while time came for their third child, they became lenient.

Mary further revealed her dad came to watch her show and understood what she was doing. Sadly, he passed away in 2013.
